Whate’er my God ordains is right: Holy His will abideth;
I will be still whate’er He doth, And follow where He guideth:
He is my God; Though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall;
Wherefore to Him I leave it all.
I know the Lord is high in state,
Above all gods our Lord is great;
The Lord performs what he decrees,
In heaven and earth, in depths and seas.
He makes the vapors to ascend
In clouds from earth’s remotest end;
The lightnings flash at his command,
He holds the tempest in his hand.
